Adventure in Mexico

Brother Tervort, our seminary teacher, took a bunch of students to Mexico in 1978.  How very brave of him and what a fabulous time we had!  The best synopsis of our activities was published in our town newspaper.  Mexico City was very different from our small town of Nephi, Utah.  A group of us ascended the Latin-American Tower for a view of the city… and had this picture taken.

I particularly remember and enjoyed climbing both the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon at Teotihuacan.  Here is a picture of our entire group on another set of ruins at Monte Alban.

    My mom is Kelly Rae. I have begun to type up her journal and yesterday I typed an entry about her going to Mexico and what a neat experience that was for her. It was so exciting to find a picture of the group that she went with!
    “I had the opportunity to go to Mexico during the summer of 1978, That was a great experience. I was able to see how the Mexican people. We visited pyramids where at one time Jesus had walked. We attended a fire side and also sacrament meeting. The spirit is the same everywhere. I met a mexican named Raphael Gomba who spoke all spanish. We talked by sign language, we met a stake dance, he is 20, a member of the Church and a real gentleman. We had many neat experiences with train and bus rides. Upon leaving Mexico City Raphael gave me a neckless (sic), its really interesting. My testimony was greatly strengthened.”

      I knew her from 5th grade (when I first moved to Nephi) until we graduated in 1980. She was a good girl and a good woman. I will email you a news article you might like to see 🙂
